with the outrageously complicated obama care law. according to the "the washington post," some of these navigators are likely to come from unions as well as immigrant service and community service organizations. but here is the reality. nobody, nobody will actually know what the navigators do because there is no objective way to measure advice. the navigators may be paid hourly with senior executives making up to 48 bucks an hour at least that's the federal estimate. again, what do these people actually do? this has the potential to be an enormous reuse, another close sell waste of money. nancy pelosi can't explain obama care. to say that obama care is off to a bad start is the understatement of the century. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. with us david callahan co-founder of demoss co-founder of a progressive organization. that might be a freudian slip there. all right. i don't know whether you know this or not, but i have not been an obama care hater, all right? i would like every american to have health insurance. i think that would be good for the country. i don't wan
to washington. >> hi, like so many californians i'm the son of immigrants. >> reporter: the announcement was delivered online, democrat roe cana plans to run against honda. cana served for the obama administration. he now teaches in stanford. >> i understand the skill set that is competitive for young people. whether it's robotics, whether it's having the right type of technology skills. >> reporter: even with $1 million in his war chest and a team that includes staffers from the obama campaign going up against handa will not be easy. honda won his first school election about the time that cana was in kindergarten. >> i have a will the of respect for cana's service. but this is not about him it's about my view for the future. i bring a different perspective on issues of silican valley. i have different ideas on how to attract businesses. and to be competitive in a global committee. >> reporter: and we reached out to honda's camp late in the day for comment but so far have not heard back. cara liu, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> we did catch up with congressman mike honda earlier today on anoth
president obama and also a professor at george washington university. pj crowley, are we heading to any kind of nuclear conflict with north korea here? >> i really don't think so. the bottom line is, north korea is crazy but they're not suicidal. the kim family business, they want that to continue. the kim family reign, they want to continue. so they'll make a lot of noise. but i don't think that they're going to jump off the cliff. >> we're seeing that the u.s. has been sending a missile defense system to guam. clearly some military activity. at what point should the united states consider some kind of military attack, all be it from a defensist standpoint if we can't put up with these saber rattling threats any longer? >> we need to be careful there. the last time the united states went across the 38th parallel during the korean war it didn't work well for us. china didn't particularly like that action. i mean, really, if we thought they really were at the point where they were going to fire a missile at us and add some prospect of hitting the united states, obviously, you know, taking act
jump protocol and invite the young man to washington for a dinner and sit down and have obama talked to him or the secretary of state man to man. all they can do is say no. all good questions. have you been back to north korea? host: he is gone. sorry about that. as our calller looked across, he would have found north of rio was probably more prosperous than self reappear yen since that time, south korea has become a success story. north korea is still back in the time warp of 1965. so it is different on the korean peninsula now than it did then. i think that obviously has an impact on the situation we're dealing with. i do not know whether kim jong- un speaks english. i do not think others have met him. i suppose he studied english at least during the brief time he was in school in switzerland. i would not be surprised if he knows some english. question of china providing what north korea needs actually needs to be turned around. i think many of us think that china has been too indulgent of north korea and so willing to provide food, fuel, and other kinds of assistance that it has e
